The robot engineer
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015, CEUR-WS. All rights reserved.We described preliminary work on designing a "robot engineer". Somewhat similar to the idea of a robot scientist, the robot engineer is a closed-loop system that designs tools for a robot, and even complete robots, that are tested in simulation, manufactured and realised using 3D printing. The artefact is then evaluated on real-world tasks, feeding back to the original design. The system builds on ILP techniques originally developed for learning tool use by a robot. These are extended with methods for transforming the functional specification produced by the ILP system into a design that is suitable for manufacture.
